2011 XTERRA Trail Run World Championship

Kualoa Ranch  l  Oahu, Hawaii 

December 4, 2011  l  9:00 am

The XTERRA Trail Running World Championship is an off-road half-marathon. The event will also host 5km and 10km trail runs, a free OC 16 Kids K race, an adventure walk, great food and stunning scenery.

Some of the world’s fastest trail runners will be competing for $10,000 in prize money which is awarded to the top 7 men and women.  Everyone who conquers the half-marathon championship course will earn a finisher’s medal, as well the top three in each age group for every distance. Note: Winners must be present to receive their awards.

The spectacular Kualoa Ranch, on the northeastern side of Oahu, will host this ultimate Hawaiian experience for the international field of trail runners for the third straight year.  The 4,000-acre working cattle ranch reaches from the steep mountain cliffs to the sparkling sea and the terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys and from beautiful white sand beaches to awesome verdant cliff faces. The epic nature of Kualoa Ranch has inspired television shows and Hollywood films such as Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, Pearl Harbor, Godzilla, Tears of the Sun50 First Dates, and LOST.

The XTERRA Trail Running World Championship is held in conjunction with the XTERRA Trail Run Series, a collection of more than 60 adventurous, off-road trail runs of various distances spanning the globe from Malibu to Japan.
